Three-star cornerback prospect Will Hines (Waco, Texas/Waco) committed to Missouri back in July. That still hasn’t stopped schools from courting this Lone Star State defensive back. Two in hot pursuit are Arkansas and TCU. In fact, Hines was supposed to visit the Razorbacks this weekend.
“I didn’t go, as things changed at the last minute,” Hines said. “But I will visit them in January (Jan. 13) and TCU (Jan. 20). Those two schools have really been recruiting me hard and showing a lot of interest. I am still committed to Missouri, but I want to make these two visits just to make sure. I want to get out there, meet the coaches, see the campuses, and meet the people.”
If Hines does stick with Missouri, he’s certainly excited about his future there, especially playing in the SEC.
“I like their decision to go to the SEC,” Hines said. “It’s the most competitive conference there is right now. Although I would have liked to have played all those times in Texas.”
Hines, 6-foot-1 and 185 pounds, had a very good senior season, recording 40 tackles, 16 pass break ups and an interception.
Hines visited Missouri back on Dec. 9 for his official visit. He’s the No. 86-ranked cornerback in the nation.
